The Victoria Film Festival (AKA Victoria Independent Film & Video Society) is responsible for operating in compliance with the Motion Picture Act and Consumer Protection BC.

To attend a VFF film screening (which may not have been classified by Consumer Protection BC), you must be a Victoria Independent Film & Video Society member.

Membership is by annual subscription and is limited to persons who are 18 years of age or over.

Only members are permitted to be present at the place where a non-classified film is being exhibited.

Victoria Independent Film & Video Society’s mandate is the encouragement and appreciation of motion pictures as a medium of art, information or education.

    A note about membership: All commercial movies are classified by the Business Practices & Consumer Protection Authority of BC, deemed appropriate for public viewing, and rated accordingly – it’s the law! This is a costly process, and one that the Victoria Film Festival cannot afford. Therefore, Festival films are unclassified and can only be viewed by members who are over the age of 18. If you purchase a VFF Film or Gold pass, a VFF membership is included. Your membership – a nominal $2 investment per year– is also valid for unrated films at the Vic Theatre until the following August.
